Uekman Foundation Donates AEDs to Arkansas State



JONESBORO – To complete an initiative Arkansas State University began last year to put an automated external defibrillator (AED) in every major building on campus, the Garrett Uekman Foundation purchased and donated an additional 18 units to A-State.  Those on hand for the presentation were (from left) Amber Boulton and Diana Boulton, owner of American First Response; Jon Carvell, safety director for A-State; Michelle and Danny Uekman, board members of the Uekman Foundation; and Heather Putnam, channel partner manager for Zoll Medical Corp., the AED manufacturer.  Carvell said the gift, valued at $24,300, makes the devices more readily available throughout campus to help individuals who experience cardiac arrest.
